Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB Nnamdi Kanu, has stated that he knows he would come out of detention very soon.
Nnamdi Kanu claimed that he had done nothing illegal worthy of the Nigerian government’s re-arrest.
Kanu’s decision was revealed in a statement published by his legal representative, Ifeanyi Ejiofor. Ejiofor stated that Kanu’s legal team was working hard to secure his release.
The statement reads partly: “Onyendu is very much strong in his conviction and has remained unshaken, believing most strongly that he will regain his freedom soon because he has not committed any offence known to law.
“Our Client – Onyendu Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not oblivious of the antics of his detractors, who are desperately working day and night to enthrone confusion and destroy all he has laboured for years to build. To that end, he advised his followers to remain more vigilant now than ever. He emphasized that this is indeed perilous times.”
Meanwhile, Former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has devoted his victory in the 2021 Anambra Governorship Election to three police officers killed after he was ambushed by gunmen in his village of Isuofia in the Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State in April 2021 at a town hall meeting.
He gave a victory speech moments after the Independent National Electoral Commission pronounced him the winner on Wednesday morning.
Soludo said: “Let me say with utmost humility and gratitude to God, I accept the results of the 2021 Anambra Governorship Election as declared by INEC. And this reflects the supreme will of the Almighty God and an overwhelming sacred mandate of the people…This is a divine journey whose time has come.
